When she taught, she was ready to get a baby; she found out that she had some medical issues that prevent her to do this. It was the hardest thing she had to pass through. Her doctors suggested that she should use a surrogate and this is what she did. She said that as Mason grows up, they will try to do it again. Being a mother did not affect her in any way and she plans to continue to play golf. However, she said that she is happier since her stress has reduced.
